Sweet Cherubim Natural Foods & Restaurant1105 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
New management? Somewhat disorganized
Submitted Sunday, September 2, 2012 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

My partner and I went there based on my previous, positive experiences. This time I can't comment on the food because we had to leave without eating any of it. We were on a deadline and I had (mistakenly) assumed based on past experience that because the food is already prepared and waiting in steam tables that it wouldn't take 20+ minutes to serve it. It did. Time was short so I asked if our order to could be changed to take out. They agreed but it took so long for them to transfer the dishes, we had to leave without the food. So. Can't comment on the food although I've enjoyed it in the past but did want to caution prospective diners that the service is slow and somewhat disorganized. Don't assume, as we did, that you can get in and out in under 40 minutes.

Tomahawk Restaurant1550 Phillip Ave, North Vancouver
Great Canada Day Experience
Submitted Sunday, July 10, 2011 - 8:21pm [Dine in]

A year or two ago, Alexandra Gill the food columnist for the Globe and Mail did a round of up best burger places in the Lower Mainland. The Tomahawk featured prominently along with a few other places.

Fast forward to Canada Day, 2011 and we found ourselves in a rented car driving over the Second Narrows bridge with the sole intention of grabbing a burger at the Tomahawk. I'm not sure what we were thinking but our plans didn't include circling the block a few times to find a parking spot--which we eventually did. The place was packed! In addition to hungry locals, there was a bus load or two of Shriners noshing down on breakfast (served all day). After a brief wait we were seated in the dining room and got to experience the Tomahawk in all of its kitchy glory. I was 10 again!

On to the food... I had a Chief Simon Baker burger and my friend had a Chief Dominic Charlie Burger. Mine had bacon, cheddar and sauteed mushrooms; his had bacon and Tomahawk special sauce. We both sprang for gravy with our fries. What gravy! Some reviewers claim it's canned--well, that's possible but it was pretty darn tasty. The burgers were moist and flavourful and tasted home made. I preferred mine to the Chief Dominic Charlie because I felt the beefiness of the patty came through more. Very, very tasty. I also had a strawberry milkshake with my burger--good but I was kinda disappointed it didn't come in the metal shake glass some places serve them to in. Anyway, long story short--it was a great burger in a great location and I will be back.

You should go.

Raglan's Bistro15 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
HappyHappyHappyHappyHappy
Submitted Tuesday, June 22, 2010 - 2:24pm [Dine in]

Went to Raglan's last week with 3 friends to celebrate a happy occasion. I'd wanted to go here for a long time but never had the opportunity--until last week. My initial thought was that we would settle in for a celebratory drink or two before moving elsewhere to dine. After scanning the menu, however, my friends convinced me to stay. That and the architectural wonder that is the '900 Burger' being served to an adjacent table.

The service was great. Our server was friendly and there when we wanted her. The tropical drinks, available in 3 sizes (and price points) were outstanding both in taste and presentation. Star fruit as a garnish!

Although one of us was tempted by the pulled pork poutine, each of us settled in to enjoy some variation of burger, beef or chicken. With bacon. Yum. Each burger comes with regular fries or you can substitute, at cost, yam fries or salad. For may part, the chicken burger with avocado and bacon was really, really good. As were the fries--which would have provided an excellent base for any poutine!

Just to recap: service = friendly and intelligent and food = pretty darn good.

On to the decor--which was the reason I wanted to come. If you're interested in surfer / tiki surroundings where some of the tables are surf boards, this is the place for you. A little bit of the exotic in North Van. Lovely! We will be back. :-)

Paros Taverna9604 Cameron Street, Burnaby
Great Service, Good Food
Submitted Monday, January 25, 2010 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

There seems to be some invisible standard for Greek food in Vancouver that no restaurant seems to be able to measure up to. Nuts to that. My bf and I went to Paros for lunch the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place was busier than I had seen it recently but there was no problem being shown quickly to a table and given the best service I've had in a l-o-o-o-n-g time anywhere. I had chicken souvlaki, he had roast lamb and we split an appetizer. The food was on par with Greek food I've had in Montreal, Toronto and elsewhere in the lower mainland. This is the third time we've been here and it won't be the last. The food is consistently enjoyable and the service outstanding.

European Delicatessen1220 Davie Street, Vancouver
Wonderful lunch on a rainy day
Submitted Friday, January 22, 2010 - 5:31pm [Dine in]

A friend and I had lunch here shortly before Christmas. The little restaurant was busy but not overwhelmed. We each had the pasta lunch special and Tiramisu for dessert. While I have a happy memory of the pasta, details are sketchy. Sorry! The Tiramisu, however, was a stand out. I have never had better Tiramisu since moving to Vancouver.

The service was friendly without being treacly.

Come for the pasta special, stay for the Tiramisu.

Vita Bella Ristorante4544 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Worth returning for
Submitted Wednesday, July 2, 2008 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

After deciding to go for dinner at an Italian restaurant, we chose Vita Bella partly because of location and partly based on feedback here. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent from appetizer to dessert (best Tiramisu I've had in metro Vancouver) and the service was very good. The Gnocchi alla Contadina was a stand out and the Penne dell Zio, served with a light cream sauce, was not overly rich.

It was a pleasure to dine here and we will be back
